You Betta!

Totally iridescent with gold, blue, red and violet highlights,
handsome little guy!

Had so much fun playing with the sparkly paint, I did a few more :^)

Blue Betta

Blue Betta

I remember my first big aquarium and all the colorful fish in motion...better than watching TV!
I fell in love with siamese fighting fish---Bettas were so lovely to look at but had to be separate from all the others. 
Someone came up with a betta barracks! 
A little plastic bin that attached to the top front on the aquarium
and allowed for several bettas to be visible to all - including each other
so a little flaring was possible.

Oregon Coast

Spring Break in progress and the coast is one popular
place to visit.
If you plan on swimming...
the water is a bit chilly.
Better to hang out by a bonfire on the beach.

Apparently, I have voles.
I found these little holes in the ground 
and wondered what they were.
I noticed there were no greens 
where my tulip bulbs were planted.

The only bulbs that have survived
are in an elevated bed 
surrounded by brick.

Kiss it Good Bye!

Winter Sunset 2

A challenge from the 7 Card Draw
and hopefully the last of winter.

I am so willing to kiss it good bye...
